Its a good story but a bit slow by todays writting standards. If you enjoy 20,000 leagues under the sea and around the world in 80 days you will like this. The story is good for the imagination but can drag at times.
"Milestone in history of books"
If you, as we probably all did have seen the movie, then you have some expectations to the book. To me this was a venture in old times, when I have read the book as a teenager.
So, I dont have to say much of the story. It is well known and a milestone in history of books. The reading is smoothly and doesnt lack of emphatcy. All in all, I enjoyed it much.
While the story is familiar, this original telling truly drags. The first person perspective is probably the only reason I was able to finish this dull time suck.
"A Great Classic"
Wishing was me
The entire book
A beautiful historical escape into the past and wishing it were the present.
"One of the great titles of all time?"
Robinson Crusoe is a book that takes a long time of getting into. the first few hours are an unorganized slop of a bunch of his adventures before getting into the main story. this might be a book that is better to buy in print than on audio. John Lesault, the narrator does a great job with this. he has a, not altogether interesting, but not boring voice.
An interesting listen if you have time to listen to it in chunks. Otherwise Robinson Crusoe is not really worth listening to as you will get lost in the story and not know what is going on.
ITS ROBINSON CRUSOE, we all know the story. Oh the reader does a good job.
